"After spending eight years in exile, away from her country , when BB returned to Pakistan she was advised to limit her activities as she was facing life threats, but the great leader refused to do so saying people have reached from the mountains of Kashmir to welcome me, now how can I stay away from them".

This was stated by the Deputy Speaker of Azad Jammu & Kashmir Assembly Ms. Shaheen Kasaur Dar, while highlighting the vision of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed at an event to mark her 4th death anniversary here in Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science & Technology (SZABIST) Islamabad.

Sharing her personal experience the speaker recalled the December 27, 2007 evening when she and many other workers of PPP were standing in one row in front of BB shaheed, and late prime minister asked them to united in helping the poor and mitigating the sufferings of all those who are deprived, oppressed and helpless.
